Every year, right before Valentine’s Day, I try to remember to print out some quick sheet music for fun and sight reading. As many of you have told me, I’ve posted so much over the years that sometimes it is hard to find it all. Today’s post has links to most of the sheet music about Valentine’s Day that I’ve posted over the years. Of course I’ve concentrated on the younger students, so none of the sheets are longer than one page. There are two folk songs that are harder, an early level two, and one that is late level two. All of these have been posted before except for a brand new sheet for the first day of lessons, Valentine’s Day.
The first 2 songs are on the black keys and are so easy even preschool children can play them at the first lesson. They love to go home with a holiday song they can play right away.
Valentines Day PR is the new printable I have never posted. If you are starting a new student, print this and Roses are Red now! They are perfect for the first day of lessons and students go home so excited to be playing a Valentine’s song.
Chocolate Valentines Pre-reading version is for beginners or young children who don’t read on the staff yet. It is played on the white keys.
Chocolate Valentines On the Staff came about because one of my students saw the pre-reading version and begged me to make one for her on the staff.
This next song set is the traditional Valentine’s folk song, Love Somebody, Yes I do, arranged in 3 levels.
Love Somebody – This version is pre-reading on the white keys.
Love Somebody – Beginners who read notes on the staff can play this one.
Love Somebody – This is a level two version. It has eighth notes and some hands together. It is only one page, so there is time to learn it by Valentine’s. Day.
There’s a Little Wheel A-Turning in My Heart is my favorite Valentine’s folk song. This version is for level 2B. Although it only has one page, it does have a dotted quarter notes and some coordination of the hands. The left hand starts with eighth notes for the turning wheel sound.
If you have a lot of students and want to save on printing costs, put these sheets in page protectors and loan them to students! After the holiday is over, students give them back to you for future use. Keep them in your binder so you can get to them easily when you want to use holiday music, with dividers for each holiday. You can use worksheets the same way, and students can even use dry eraser markers on the sheet protectors.
In the next week or so I’ll post links to all the Valentine games I’ve posted. In the meantime, if you go over to the right side of my home page and type Valentine’s Day or Valentines in the search engine, all my Valentine posts over the past few years will pop up, including games, worksheets, and music.
I would like to send a special thank you to those of you who so generously help with the expenses of this site. If it were not for you, this would not be possible!
